Kate’s diary – part 7 (phrases with come)

Dear Diary,It’s my lucky day today! At first I had a funny but nice
dream… I was back at university standing in the lecture hall and
presenting a project about modern architecture in Canada. I felt it
was an excellent presentation. The audience seemed to be excited and
interested, no stupid questions came up. The professor was smiling at
me.

The lecture came off as planned – or even better! When I finished, the director came up to me with a bunch of sunflowers and said: ‘Make all your dreams come true.’ Suddenly I heard somebody shouting but I couldn’t understand a word! At that moment I woke up.

And there really was somebody shouting – it was Jenny and she was saying ‘Come on! Hurry up! Time to work!’ Later on when I was going to work I came across a hundred-crown note in the street! Great! And then at work I was given a pay rise by the director! Excellent! And on the way home I came across my old English roommate in town. We went for a drink and chatted for almost two hours and in the end she invited me to come over to England for Christmas! Things are coming along fine!!!
